Eva Marie to face Naomi in WWE Raw return


Eva Marie will be in action as she makes her return to WWE television tonight.

WWE has announced that Eva Marie vs. Naomi will take place on tonight's episode of Raw. Several weeks of videos hyping Marie's return have aired on Raw leading into her arrival, culminating with it being announced last week that she would be returning on tonight's show.

This will be the first time Marie has wrestled since 2016. She and WWE mutually agreed to part ways in 2017.

It was reported last October that Marie would be making her return to WWE. The videos hyping her return began airing on the May 3 episode of Raw. The videos have advertised that the "Eva-Lution" is coming to Raw, with Marie speaking about wanting to be a role model and inspire others.

Dave Meltzer confirmed last week that the plan is for Marie "to have a bodyguard with her with Mercedes Martinez and Piper Niven’s names both being thrown out."

Tonight's Raw is the brand's go-home show for Hell in a Cell. Here's the updated lineup for the episode:

  • Drew McIntyre vs. AJ Styles
  • The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods) vs. RK-Bro (Randy Orton & Riddle)
  • Eva Marie vs. Naomi
